The Landmark in Burnley has continued its growth as one of the most thriving co-working and digital workspaces in the UK by being listed on the Barclays Eagle Labs website as one of their ‘unique locations.’
Cementing Burnley’s ever-growing reputation as one of the UK’s leading ‘Tech Towns,’ The Landmark and Burnley is now listed on their website alongside other major towns and cities including Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Belfast – https://labs.uk.barclays/community/the-landmark.
The Landmark became an independent site partner of Barclays Eagle Labs back in 2019, less than a year after its opening following a spectacular multi-million-pound transformation of the iconic Grade II listed, former Burnley Grammar School in the heart of Burnley town centre.
Barclays Eagle Labs provides a platform to connect the UK’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, in order to drive digital skills development and to help grow the economy through innovation and change.
Landmark members, burgeoning start-ups, entrepreneurs and tech businesses seeking to grow and develop, have access to an unrivalled abundance of support and services, delivered by the team of skilled experts from worldwide leading banking group, Barclays.
Services provided include ongoing business support, on-site support team, access to financial experts, a national network of entrepreneurs, exclusive business events, access to the Eagle Labs network, prototyping and guidance, as well as access to high-tech equipment.
Claire Rhodes, General Manager at The Landmark, said: “We have been an independent site partner of Barclays Eagle Labs for some time now and our members really value their help and advice.
“To see The Landmark and Burnley listed alongside some of the UK’s biggest towns and cities is a sight to behold, and we are looking forward to welcoming more young start-ups and entrepreneurs to our site and to open up more exciting opportunities for businesses in the local area.
“We currently boast a wide variety of clients, from banks and lawyers, to accountants and training providers, all of which have experienced fantastic growth here at The Landmark.”
Darren O’Brien, Eco System Manager at Barclays Eagle Labs, commented: “The building aesthetically here is gorgeous, but you come inside and you can really see the vibrancy of the businesses that are in here, the different support that is available and all the amenities are on point, from the event space, the meeting rooms, the offices and the co-working space, it’s a beautiful building and you can see how it can help and support businesses grow and scale.”
Mr O’Brien added: “Some of the benefits that you get by being an Eagle Labs member include access to our mentors, the programmes that we offer such as funding, as well as a great events calendar which we run nationally and locally throughout the year.
“Whether you’re a one-person band or a more established SME, if you’re looking for basic business support or how to expand internationally, Eagle Labs is here to support.”
The Landmark’s Business Club is a fully flexible workspace offering high-quality, affordable flexible monthly co-working memberships and pay-as-you-go hot desking options, with access to meeting rooms, large event and conference facilities, as well as a fully licensed café bar.
